Sick silver-lining

To-date 790 British service personnel have been seriously injured in Afghanistan while working as part of ISAF (the International Security Assistance Force.) That's 790 fit young men (and occasionally women) who have lost a limb or two but came back alive. (There have been 219 fatalities.)

So we should be doing well in the London para-Olympics in 2012!
